Full time (37.5 hours p/w) – Permanent

If you are looking for a rewarding career and to work within an epic team that will help you grow and thrive, then you have come to the right place. Working within our Constitution Street service you can start your day knowing what you do really does make a difference!

Our Constitution Street service delivers a high-quality Care at Home and Housing Support service for adults with severe and enduring mental health challenges. Supporting 11 individual tenancies, and community-based outreach support, the service operates on a 24/7 basis.

With the aim of equipping people with the skills needed to live independently and meaningfully within the local community, a strengths-based coaching approach to recovery is used to build confidence, maintain motivation and promote resilience. Alongside this we also provide practical support with food preparation, medication, budgeting and other daily living skills.

Promoting participation and inclusion is a core value of the service, through working alongside people to deliver innovative, creative and personalised interventions and opportunities.

You will be experienced and passionate about working in a person-centred way with adults who experience mental health issues or adults who are expressing their needs through distressed behaviour and substance misuse. With a strong interest in people and a commitment to helping others, you will strive to make a positive impact on people’s lives and tailor support to enable people to fulfil their best potential.

As the service operates on a 24 hour basis, a variety of shifts will be required on a rota basis, including sleepovers.

As a mental health charity, we really value the wellbeing of our staff. That’s why we want you to know that you’ll be joining a friendly team, who will give you a supportive environment to help you thrive in your role, including all the training you need to feel confident and equipped.

We can offer you a tonne of employee benefits, and we can promise you’ll be inspired by some pretty amazing humans every single day. We will support you on your own career path; developing new skills, accessing formal and informal learning experiences and providing opportunities to put your continual progress into practice.
